Industrial workers have rights after suffering workplace injuries

Those who are employed in industrial jobs face an inherently higher risk of injuries or work-related illnesses. Despite the potential hazards, these workers have rights that must be protected when workplace injuries occur. After an on-the-job accident, it is critical to work with a lawyer who is experienced in workers' rights and workers' compensation benefits in California.

California tree trimmer injured on the job after serious fall

A California man employed as a tree trimmer fell approximately 60 feet to his death while at work in Magalia. At the time of the fall, the man was performing a task called topping, which is where a worker trims just the top of the trees. He was fatally injured on the job when the base of the tree broke while he was working.

Worker suffers on-the-job injury after 11-story fall

A California worker has recently spoken about his life after he amazingly survived an 11-story fall. The man was employed as a window washer in San Francisco when he fell after losing his balance, landing on a moving car. His recovery from the on-the-job injury is quite remarkable, but immediately after the fall, he was unconscious and suffered brain trauma and multiple broken bones.

Does an illness qualify you for workers' compensation benefits?

There are certain protections in place for the support and benefit of injured California workers and families. When an individual is injured on the job, he or she is eligible for benefits to cover medical bills, lost wages and other financial losses. However, workers may not be aware that certain illnesses or exacerbation of an existing medical condition could also be grounds for a workers' compensation claim. 

Increase in jobs, increase in workers' compensation claims

California is enjoying an increase in jobs across the state, which is great news for residents, but it has led to an increase in on-the-job injuries. At this point, the rate of workers' compensation claims in the state is higher than the national average. The reason for this increase is due to continued job availability in particularly hazardous industries.

On-the-job injury: increasing safety can increase productivity

California workers have the right to a safe work environment. Few would argue this right, but few employers and managers consider how increasing workplace safety can actually increase the productivity of workers. Many workers fear violence in the workplace, and without realizing it, allow this fear to impact their productivity. Essentially, alleviating fears of on-the-job injury related to violence could be better for everyone, including the employer's bottom line.
